New Paltz from above

I wanted to try something that I have always been longing to do, so I took a 15 minutes cab ride to “Skydive the Ranch”, to skydive above New Paltz. The weather conditions were unfortunately not very good since it was cloudy, but luckily the clouds were not that thick.

The view that I got from the plane on my way up and from the jump and down is indescribable. I got to break through the clouds on the way down and to see the sun break through other parts of the clouds. The only thing I can say is how AMAZING it was, and that this is an experience that I never will forget. Since this was my first time jumping with someone – a so-called tandem jump – and we jumped from 14,000 feet, the jumping experience took about 10-15 minutes.
